Merry Christmas Blog Hop

The Paper Piecing By Nikki Design Team welcomes you to our "Merry Christmas Blog Hop".  Today we want to inspire you with everything Christmas.  You'll see lots of ideas for layouts, cards, tags, bags, boxes, gifts.....and much more!  Please take a minute out of  your very busy schedule and join us.
If you'd like to start at the beginning, then hop on over to Nikki's Blog (  If you've come in from Nikki's blog then you are in the right spot.   If you get lost along the way, here's a complete list of our Design Team line up:
My project for today are some 'sweet thing' gift boxes.  I love to give a little something to everyone over the holidays - so when I go to the doctors office, or the dentist - the school secretary or the secretaries at my hubby's work.  Just a little something that says, "I appreciate you and am thinking of you."

The gift box is a cut from the Close To My Heart Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  I have used this little 'french fry box' cut for so many things!  It holds just enough.   You can get this cartridge from me at . 
This adorable little bear comes from Paper Piecings By Nikki "Christmas Decoration Bears". 
This is the cutest file and so much fun to make.  Even my 5-year old Grandest Daughter loves to make this bear!
Here's the next one I created:
 This file is called "Christmas Polar Bears Trio" and has the three cutest little polar bears to piece!  
I filled each little box with a package of hot cocoa mix, two candycanes and a couple chocolate chip cookies.  Perfect for a little sweet break!
Thank you so much for joining us today on our hop!  Your next stop will be Linda
Thank you so much for hopping with us today.  We hope you've been inspired to try some of these ideas.  Please leave us a comment, we love hearing from all our fans.  We will be picking one fan from all the comments to win some PPBN files.  Tell us what you will be making for Christmas this year!
Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year to all....
